    Very enjoyable short walk even on a cold frosty morning. Trees, birds and waterfall all beautiful and a free family friendly activity.  more »

    Purukaunui Falls is just a short 10-15 minute traipse through a podocarp forest from the carpark. It may not be impressive in terms of scale but is beautiful with its multiple levels of cascading wate...  more »

    Well constructed path with steps and bridges. The inlet to the waterfall is also capable of great photos.

    Amazing experience and photograph opportunity. I thought it was well worth the drive from Dunedin. Very well maintained paths.

    Very good scenic walk for the very young, elderly and families with kids. It doesn't require super fit people. The track has wooden rail fences on parts where it is narrow. Very safe and much fun for children. A good setting for those awesome photos of children on the tree hollows.

    An easy walk with a toddler. Enough mud for children in gumboots and easy enough for parent to carry when they tire. Beautiful waterfall

    The falls looked nice, but not as spectacular as I had imagined. A lot of pictures you see online are log exposure, so I think they look more impressive. Also, beware the water is lower in the summer so it can be more dry during times!

    Nature at it's best, and a short drive from the city.
